Received in a trade. Not sure how fresh it was. Drank a bruery sour in the rye about 2 hours earlier so my palate may be ruined. Citrusy, piney nose. Golden amber pour. Relatively big hop characteristic. Good beer but nothing to write home to mom about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Thanks Ian! Pours orange, with a medium, pillowy, off-white head. Big aroma of grapefruit, grainy malts, and some bitter orange peels. Mild malty sweetness, with a fairly assertive bitterness, and a long, bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body, astringent, and sticky. Overall, this is a pretty nice pale ale, with a nicely balanced flavor, and pleasant aroma. Nothing special, but just a quality beer.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Served: 12 oz bottle Look: pours a dark honey color, slight cloudiness to it. 1 finger head, evaporates into a thin film on top. Thin laces on the edge of the glass as it evaporates. Smell: definite smell of hops in the beginning. Taste: hop flavor, slight bitterness to it. Feel: Better flavor with slightly larger than normal head. Not too heavy, good carbonation level. Overall: Better served in a pint glass than a tulip. First Drank: Mom & Dad's XMAS eve 2013

Saeglopur (156) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Online Shop. Wow, what an appearance! Deep copper, slightly hazy body, with a beautiful, huge, stable, creamy, frothy, slightly beige head, that leaves a massive ring-shaped lacing. Wonderful, complex, fruity, aroma of wild berries, citrus, tangerine, orange peel, peach, pine, candy. Taste is an almost perfect combination of crisp hop and smooth malt notes, with about the same aromas again, but also a distinct biscuit malt backbone. Incredible balance! Mouthfeel is medium, slick, oily, with just the right amount of carbonation and it finishes smooth, moderate bitter, fruity and malty. Simply amazing! Close to perfection, one of the very best beers Iíve ever had, definitely the best APA I know, even better than their Zombie Dust in my opinion. I donít think that Iíve had another beer before, with such a perfect balance, high drinkability and complexity at the same time!

stoutnick (386) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
Six pack from Ashland, Kentucky. Deep golden. Aroma is citrus fruit then citrus citrus citrus. Taste is the same (citrus citrus) with some hop bitterness and caramel in the mix. Good finish. Nice pale, though citrus flavours arenít my favourite in beer.

freeofthoughts (633) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2014
Three week young bottle pours a nice clear copper orange with some gold in the thin parts, eggshellish suds. The aroma is sweet and fruity with a malty tint. It starts malty and bready with a large pale ale feel, rich on all sides. The hops have a fresh deep complexity with some earthy green stalk, floral, light citrus pine, and light tree fruit flavors. The finishes with a little sparkle of carbonation and lasting floral orange peel hop bitterness with a touch of malty sweet. Pretty nice beer, strattles the line between a malty ipa and an overgrown American pale ale.

Perfect!!! A great beer!!! Citrus hops with a little but of pine and sweetness to it. Smooth and delicious. The hops arenít over powering and the hops blend really with the malt

Frovigalning (2694) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen. Deep fruity smell with dried fruit, citrus and hops. Similar taste. Very easy to drink. Just the right level of bitterness to balance out the sweetness.
